Risk/analysis: upgrade to Android 10

2020-09-24, 2:50 AM

This is not a rhetorical question, I'm asking seriously. Seems a high proportion of those that accepted it have big issues, with many having to reset their phone. 

I just haven't heard enough of the benefits of upgrading to make me risk it, so I'm sticking with Android 9 for now. 

I find it works well as-is, I'm not tempted by the newer version. 

I'm interested in hearing other opinions, was the benefit of A10 worth all the trouble?

My G7 Power updated with no problems, very smooth update and very pleased to get it. A10 is much better in the way it allows fine tuning of permissions and much more. Runs quicker, battery is better.


Factor into your risk analysis that it's normal to see reports of problems - people without problems tend not to post about that. Focus, if you can, only on reports from users of the same phone model as you have and who use the same carrier and then try to decide if those users are reporting real problems or user error or confusion.

I was also concerned. My phone installed the update when my thumb hit install instead of delay. Good news is all is well. I am using a g7 RETAIL model purchased from Best Buy. I am on the ATT network. My biggest regret with the phone is WiFi calling is not supported by ATT on this phone and band 71 is missing. The 9-10 update was a non event for me. Review all the issues and see if your phone hits any of the reported problems.
